I see beauty in everything, especially in light.
I love to take pictures,

I am still learning to make great ones.


Hi! I'm Shandi-lee, just a girl trying to make beautiful images. Although I've been shooting casually for many years, I've begun shooting more seriously in the past couple. I'm currently working towards my diploma getting the technical training I previously lacked when trying to learn everything on my own. Photography is what I am truly passionate about.

I love to capture everything under the sun. Taking pictures and manipulating pictures is my favourite art form, I do like things to be kept realistic, but my shooting and processing styles are how I like to see the world--light, bright, and beautiful! I love photographing flowers because their beauty astounds me, and I get nervous when I think about them withering away. Even more fascinating than flowers, though, are people and their expressions, their eyes and their bodies. I have a collection of portraits of my friends and people I know, and of the one I know best, myself. I take self-portraits to practice technique, to express myself, as an excuse to dress up, and also when there is lack of a another model, (I seem to be around every time no one else is).

I want to share what I find is beautiful. When you look at my photographs, I'm inviting you to see a glimpse into my life and understand how lovely the world can be, at least, from the eyes of a small, but big-hearted dreamer ♥!


If you feel that I can help you in any way; whether it be with my camera, using one of my works, or if you're interested in purchasing something of mine, please contact me with any inquiry!

    "Shandi-lee is a GEM of the first order.
    First of all, she is a sweet and kind young woman who also happens to be beautiful physically and in spirit. Her talents as a photographer and editor are astounding and unquestioned. She makes her pictorial images come alive. Her photos are far more than mere pictures; they are visions of Shandi-lee that come alive and breathe on the computer screen and make the viewer wish that he or she had been there to share in the experience.
    Do not miss the chance to follow this wonderful human being on her journey through life as depicted by her fabulous photographs.
    Thank you so very much, Shandi-lee for allowing me to share in the magic of your visions.
    ~ Steve ;)))))))))))))))))"

    "Oh Shandi-Lee... Where do I start with you?? First I just want to say that your photos are absolutely amazing. Honestly. There are only a handful of my contacts that I genuinely enjoy looking at (sshhh don't tell!), and you, my dear, are one of them! All your photos have such a soft, gentle feeling to them, they almost have a calming effect on me haha! You have a creative style that keeps me coming back for more, I can't get enough!
    Out of all the girls I could have met here on flickr, I am so glad that you are one of them. You're so sweet, always have something nice to say that makes me smile, and you are gorgeous!!! I'm kind of jealous :)
    Hopefully one of these days we get to actually meet, considering we only live a few hours from each other... But until then, keep posting your wonderful photos and keep in touch!
